Is My Beer Kit Still Good?

Question

I have a beer kit that’s 3 years old. I already threw the yeast away. I still have the hops (never refrigerated), priming sugar, malt extract syrup (in a can) and grains (in a bag).

Are any of these ingredients still useful? I’m thinking of brewing beer again and am wondering if I can use what I already have.

Answer

The extract and priming sugar are probably okay to use.

I’d throw the rest away.

Note that liquid malt extract often darks with age so you beer may turn out a tad darker than expected.
